Well yesterday I finally got to see the doctor.
What was he going to say?
He had been out of town for awhile.
I told him I couldn't get an answer on my other knee replacement and wondered if he called would they give him an answer. His head nurse said she would call and let me know if they had set a date. Hope they don't do her like they do me but they will at least try for me.
I told him I had lowered my diuretics and he asked why I did it on my own.
My answer was, I was weak and wanted to sleep all of the time and YOU were out of town. He looked taken aback and didn't say anymore.
With this doctor I have to watch my medications, their side effects and what it does to me. I don't want to get worse, I want to get better.
He finally asked me how old I was. I said 48 which means I am 84.
He said you look good for 84 and are in good health for 84 so I am pretty and also pretty good health wise according to him.
It does something for you to keep yourself looking nice even maybe you don't feel so young inside you can feel young anyway. I bask in the compliments. Shame on me.
Then he told me he does take more days off because the insurance is driving him mad. Insurance is requiring more and more paper work. I said how old are you
He said 54. I said you are a young man you should be able to do it.
He said a lot of doctor's are changing their professions for others just because of the insurance.
When I was 54 I lived in Old Mexico. Travelled a lot by myself and taught in Bible Schools and built churches.
You either have the calling or you don't.
Anyway I was so happy for the good report. I'm feeling mighty fine today and hope all of you are also. If you believe in prayer pray and I have a lot of prayer buddies on SPARK also. We can spark mail each other or e-mail each other with our needs and God is always there.
